We have previously described that silencing of the mitochondrial protein OPA1 enhances mitochondrial 27 Ca2+ signaling and aldosterone production in H295R adrenocortical cells. Since extramitochondrial OPA1 28 (emOPA1) was reported to facilitate cAMP-induced lipolysis, we hypothesized that emOPA1, via the 29 enhanced hydrolysis of cholesterol esters, augments aldosterone production in H295R cells. A few 30 OPA1 immunopositive spots were detected in �40% of the cells. In cell fractionation studies OPA1/COX 31 IV (mitochondrial marker) ratio in the post-mitochondrial fractions was an order of magnitude higher 32 than that in the mitochondrial fraction. The ratio of long to short OPA1 isoforms was lower in post-mito- 33 chondrial than in mitochondrial fractions. Knockdown of OPA1 failed to reduce db-cAMP-induced phos- 34 phorylation of hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL), Ca2+ signaling and aldosterone secretion. In conclusion, 35 OPA1 could be detected in the post-mitochondrial fractions, nevertheless, OPA1 did not interfere with 36 the cAMP – PKA – HSL mediated activation of aldosterone secretion
